You will take a slice of this tasty Sausage brioche Lyonnais pistachio !? It was (almost) an eternity that I wanted to re-test after a first experience with a sausage of Morteau. This time, I cooked a real sausage of Lyon with pistachios.

Like the first time, we are regaled with this sausage in brioche that we had with a good green salad.

Quite frankly, this is exactly the kind of recipe that made me a little pinball machine to achieve, but in fact, it is quite simple, it just has to have a little time to make up the bun. And then, made in-house, this sausage brioche Lyonnais is really better than those you can buy, with a brioche well soft and fresh ! And if you rest, it can be eaten also cold.

You have seen, for a little more fun, and because I had a little too much dough, I even decorated my cake, well, I should be, it does not look like when not even on a visual level that one obtains in the showcases of the best caterers in Lyon… ��
